Default Re: Out of curiosity, 280 to 295

The GTX295 is more closely related to the GTX260 (I like to say GTX270) as this card is like a hybrid.... If you compare the 295 to SLi 260's then this is a more fair argument, however the 295 will be faster....
Well, to explain my thinking. Yes it is a single card (GTX295) but, you are still dealing with multi-gpu technology. If you are going to deal with multi-gpu technology, I myself compare it to 260/280/285 SLI setups because, single card or not, you are dealing with SLI profiles to gain the benefits/ performance.

Thank you,
